I started this music project back in like… 2004? 2002? Noone knows. It has finally found the perfect label however, and is now released.
Join us on this unguided Audio Tour of Castle Hemmendorff. You will visit the Great Hall, where the Count hosts the monthly midnight ball for the ghosts of the Castle and unfortunate bypassers, and the Laboratory, where the Count spends much of his sleepless nights, doing questionable experiments to achieve immortality and produce mindaltering elixirs, as well as the Secret Garden, home of the mutant truffle finding poodles, self-luminous albino owls as well as many other more or less succesful experiments.
A collection of arguable love songs, this is slow dancing for the depraved. Some true gems like Billy Swan-Don’t be cruel and Katrina’s club from the Vamp soundtrack. Check the comments for full tracklist.
Edit: This was clearly to subliminal, as none of the people i’ve shown it to has actually seen that i’ve biked pubertal graffiti over entire Södermalm in Stockholm. So there, the beans are spilled.
Spring is finally rearing it’s pretty head at Stockholm, and today i took my bike out from the storage room for the first time after the winter.
There’s a reason i was particularly keen on biking this year, namely RunKeeper, an iPhone app that keeps track of your exercising. Length travelled, speed, elevation and calories, RunKeeper provides you with a lot of fun stats. And who doesn’t love stats?
But the best thing about RunKeeper it’s the GPS tracker, which records your route on google maps. All is saved on your iPhone, but also uploaded to your profile online, where you can share your trips.
I found these images of a BMX i found dumped in a ditch in Rättvik a couple of years ago. It was impossible to leave behind, and with an effort of moby dickish proportions, i actually brought it home to Stockholm.
Some year later, the building i lived in was cleaning out the bike room from bikes they assumed was trash. I’m guessing this precious piece of perfect decay was the first to go.
A sad end of what seems like an extraordinary bikelife.
For the last 9 months, i’ve been working full-time on a project initiated by me and 4 friends(hence lack of posts here). We’ve had complete secrecy so we haven’t showed it to anyone. Until now.
Looklet.com is a digital styling studio, where you can combine every type of garment from a vast wardrobe of real clothes on a model. Striving for a “high level of fashion”, the generated render is supposed to look as close as possible to a editorial outfit photo from a magazine, and all clothes are of course from real designers.
Right now we have about 1500 items(of which about a third has been published) but we’re selecting and shooting 100-200 new every week.
The site will feature some simple community-features, you have your profile where you save your looks, you can join groups and keep check of your friends activities. We will also have editorial content, all revolving around the application. An article about a new brand will always lead to the visitor trying the brands clothes in the application.
We do however not sell any clothes. It’s all fun.
At this stage, we’re still in beta. A lot of features around the site, and a lot of clothes, are to be added before unleashing this on the public. For now, you’ll need a invite code to register and try it out.
If you are interested, sign up for an invite on looklet.com and we’ll send you one as we’re letting more people in.
A 38 minute celebration of another of my musical obsessions: the sound of early 80’s new wave/synth/postpunk. Featuring the vampire freakout of Douglas Bregger, the lyrical genius of Arvid Tuba and the beautifully frantic hihats of Our Daughters Wedding. And more. AND MORE! All hits.
In this campaign we needed to do two things:
1. Highlight the brands that would lure passing locals and tourists into the department store.
2. Show a LOT of the new seasons clothes, and the range of styles available in the different stores.
We also felt the need of saying it in a pretty aggresive, in-your-face tone. This, combined with the fact that this campaign would start at May 1st(international labour movement day, “celebrated” with political rallys in Sweden) resulted in the concept of a demonstration rally. A fashionable demonstration rally.
My role: Creative Director
Photographer: Andreas Kock
Stylist: Sofie Dillon
Make-up: Anya de Tobon & Hanna
Hair: Erika Svedjevik & Ali Pirzadeh
Models: Aeneas, Geraldine, Isabel, Leona, Nike, Olivia, Peter, Yannis (all Mikas)
The theme for this campaign was sport, a word hardly associated with fashion. Our concept was pretty straightforward: we took 4 real athletes, dressed them up in high fashion, and filmed the most explosive moments in different sports. In 1000 frames per second.
